The Miami Dolphins have sacked coach Cam Cameron and all but two of his coaching staff after a season in which the team won only one NFL game.
The Dolphins have won one of 16 games this season
Jeff Ireland, who was appointed general manager on Wednesday, said releasing Cameron was a "difficult decision".
But he added: "Making this decision now gives all of the coaches the greatest chance to pursue other opportunities."
Assistant special teams coach Steve Hoffman and linebackers coach George Edwards will stay with the franchise.
Tony Sparano, assistant head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, is one possible candidate to replace Cameron, but he has also been linked with Atlanta Falcons.
